The easiest way I can see myself improving is to commit to a training schedule. I need to balance this between my patient and loving family, so my time is limited and I'll need to work smart. I hope to not limit this to just time at actual practice facilities. There are two categories I plan to focus on: Physical and Mental. For physical practice, I plan to split my time up across three categories: Full Swing, Short Game, and Putting. For the mental approach, I plan to focus on Routine and Confidence.
I plan to invest two 2 hours sessions at minimum to this per week. One session devoted to the full swing and one session devoted to the short game and putting. Of note, I plan to devote a majority of my full swing training to the tee shot. I feel that my iron play is not as significant to my scoring as my tee shot and short game/putting will be. I do not plan to enroll in formal classes; I plan to self help myself on the internet and in the library, as well as relying on my family to offer advice. I think they know enough to help me.
Tentatively Wednesday will be devoted to full swing and Saturday will be devoted to short game.
I plan to spend 2 hours per week focusing on the mental aspect of the game. I plan to focus on pre-shot routines for both full swings and the putter. I also plan to spend time reading about golf. I'd like to keep this focus on the mental component and not necessarily swing mechanics, but I may adjust my swing some and will do some research.
My goal is to report back after each training to make sure I am accountable for this schedule.
